Quotable: His Perfect Plan

If we think we are stuck in Plan B, it’s because our idea of Plan A was just that—our own idea, not God’s. God has good purposes for us, whether He accomplishes them through the goals we set or through thwarting those goals and leading us along paths we hadn’t planned on. We may not be able to discern His purposes, but Proverbs teaches us that we can rest assured that He has them and that He is overseeing the fulfillment of them.

~Lydia Brownback ~ “A Woman’s Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything”

Some great scripture she also shares:

To humans belong the plans of the heart,
    but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue. (Proverbs 16:1)

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water;
He turns it wherever He wishes. (Proverbs 21:1, NKJV)
